I guess you need to contact EDD of CA; it varies from state to state;for example, in WA state, corporate officers of for-profit corporations earning wages in Washington are exempt from unemployment-insurance coverage unless the corps voluntarily choose to insure their corporate officers and the Employment Security Department approves the request.FOR NYS, unemployment Insurance benefits shall be paid only to a claimant who is totally unemployed. Total unemployment is defined as the total lack of any employment on any day.
